3.43/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Golden straw hue with moderate carb bubbles clinging to glass. Minimal head. Hoppy, distinctive aroma with the tongue getting a good carb bath. Kind of a watery mouthfeel but I do like the taste of the hops used. Really bitter and astringent, kind of puckering almost, but in a strangely satisfying way. This one’s really all about the hops. The flavor isn’t overwhelming - certainly not a "hop bomb" per se - but the choice of hops suits me fairly well. Overall I’m not sure how well crafted this beer actually is - if I knew of other pales that used the same kind of hops I can see myself preferring the alternative.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

First of all the ABV as stated on the Mad Anthony web page is 5.0%. I was in Ft. Wayne and stopped by and had their sampler, so I am reviewing this on a 3oz or 4oz sample so the head was not that impressive as a result.

A: Very hazy golden yellow with not much head, but surprisingly enough what was there resulted in decent lacing.

S: Sweet and orangy, something interesting here, getting lots of citrus and some floral.

T: Bitter acidic orange peel taste, what was the IBU... seems pretty bitter, where did that sweet go.

M: Slightly watery with a good amount of fizz on the tongue.

O: This is an interesting brew, seems it would take a bit of getting used to. Bitter all the way, I get the feeling of chewing on orange peels. Not the best Mad Anthony has to offer in my opinion.

3.13/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: For some reason this beer this beer foamed over as soon as i opened it. This lead me to only get about 5 ounces of actual beer. When it finally settled down it poured a hazy dark orange with two finger of fluffy tan head.

Smell: Spices and citrus fruit. Slight hops and toffee notes

Taste: More Citrus and spices. I get some cinnamon and maybe some cloves???

Mouthfeel. hangs around for a while but not to long, pretty drinkable brew.

Overall: Pretty generic pale ale, not bad, but not outstanding.

T: Starts off with some light pale malt before turning a little watery then shows some light pine characteristics and a mild bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied. Decent carbonation. Light bitterness.

O: A slightly better than average pale. Drinkable, but there are better out there.

3.8/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light, ruddy, with flecks of particulate floating around, so either unfiltered or bottle conditioned. A definite plus for me. Head is off-white and whispy and may be poured as large as you want up to 3 or 4 fingers.

A little American citrus with some floral, British-like hop character. Malts have a toasty caramel quality that stays back and supports the hops.

Moderate bitterness and very light pine. Malt is sweet, but less significant than in the nose and stays in the way back behind the hops. I feel that this one could have had more 'flame-out' hops and not necessarily the bright ones, either.

A little dry with a moderate carbonation that still leaves a satisfying sting on the tongue after sipping.

Decent pale. I'm on an IPA kick right now so maybe I'm looking for something bigger, but the taste is a little thin in this one. If it could only be brought out a little more...

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Acquired from TheManiacalOne so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!
consumed 12/30
Poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a somewhat clear copper color with a lot of sediment floating around in it. A one finger of foamy, white head that recedes quickly, leaving wisps of lacing.

S: Nose is a lot of floral hops, pale malts, and a good deal of breadiness.

T: Taste starts loads of floral hops with a light, light caramel malt backbone. Some pale malts and breadiness come through the middle while still holding some floral notes. Finish has a piney hint to it.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, clean body.

D: Goes down easily, pretty tasty, not too filling, nice kick and nice representation of style. I rather enjoyed this and would absolutely have it again.

3.23/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Cloudy copperry orange with a nice thick rocky head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Mild but decent aroma. Smells a bit grainy with hints of citrus and maybe some mango.

T - Not quite what I was expecting. Very bready, lots of toasty malt flavor. Moderate to high bitterness, but not a lot of flavor from the hops. Not particularly well balanced.

M - Medium to slightly full bodied. Bigger mouthfeel than I was expecting from a pale ale, but it's mostly to do with the perceived bitterness.

D - Pretty drinkable, but doesn't leave me wanting to drink it all night.

Overall a pretty average pale ale. Glad to have tried it but wouldn't seek it out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle to a pint glass.

A: Golden color that is difficult to see through. Has a nice thick head that seems to stay around.

S: All citrus hops on this one with a bit of pine.

T: Very hoppy. Lots floral and citrus hop flavors up front. Some sweet bready malt comes in to balance it out.

M: Thin with the right amount of carbonation.

D: Very good.

This is a tasty beer. Lots of hops. I tried not to show bias being from Ft Wayne.
